Lourdes Hospital is the first NABH accredited Catholic mission hospital of Kerala. It is a tertiary care teaching hospital, located in Cochin, Kerala, India. It is one of the oldest hospitals in Cochin and has upgraded its facilities in 2007 with a new block housing the cardiology and neurology services, Lourdes Heart institute. Archbishop Joseph Attipetty founded Lourdes Hospital on 1 August 1965 in order to render healthcare to the people in Cochin and its neighbouring islands. It initially catered to the mainly fishing population of the nearby Vypeen and Bolghatty Islands, but later expanded to serve a larger population of southern Cochin and the Lakshadweep islands. With over 200 doctors and 1500 nursing allied health professionals it continues the saga of 'Love in Service'.
